New York: The UN Security Council strongly condemned on Tuesday a rocket attack on a bus in east Ukraine that left 11 civilians dead.

In a unanimous statement of the 15 members including Russia, the council called for an investigation to bring those responsible for the attack to justice.

The council "condemned in the strongest terms the killing of eleven and injuring of seventeen civilians as a result of the shelling of a passenger bus in Volnovakha, Donetsk region," said the statement

The long-range Grad rocket was apparently fired by pro-Russian separatists on the intercity bus.

Local police said the rocket was aimed at a checkpoint set up by Ukrainian government soldiers but went astray.
